You've invested time in developing a quality product. You've set up shop in a prime
location. Now how are you going to get customers to notice you? While a userfriendly website and an engaging advertising campaign will certainly drive traffic,
they can also drive up costs. Your most cost-effective and hardest working marketing
element is often also the most overlooked - an attractive and creative sign.
The investment to create an exceptional sign doesn't have to be large. In fact, great
signs are no more expensive than drab, ineffective ones. When you consider your sign is
often the first impression that potential customers will have for your business, it makes
sense to do it right. Along with your sign professional, Gemini can provide a face for
your company that will set you apart from the competition.
For nearly 50 years Gemini has been creating high-quality, innovative, and affordable
signage products. We believe in the quality of our products and we want our
customers to share that belief. For that reason, Gemini offers a Lifetime Guarantee on
all of our superior products. Should your letters or logos chip, crack or fade, we will
replace the product at no charge.

6000 Years of Experience
Casting metal is a practice that has been carried out
for thousands of years. The oldest known casting is a
copper frog that dates back to 3200 BC. While Gemini
hasn't been making cast letters for quite that long, we do
take the process and refine it by using only the highestquality metals available. In addition, the metals are
all lead and mercury free and all trim is recycled.
From the moment the molten metal is poured until the
letter or logo is hand-finished using one of our many
finish options, your project is carried out with exceptional
attention to detail. While Gemini offers a wide variety of
standard letter styles, we realize your project is unique. If
you have a custom style or logo in mind we can work with
you to make your finished product match your vision.
Gemini's cast letters provide a sense of permanency and
depth that is unmatched by other letter options. Their distinguished, classic look is backed by a Lifetime Guarantee.

A Real Life Example of Gemini's Lifetime Guarantee
Dear Gemini,
In October 2008, All-American Moving Service of Colorado Springs, Colorado contacted us. They had formed plastic letters
on their building that were missing. I knew nothing of the letters other than that they were old and had been on the building
for some time. I told the customer that I would send them a bid for Gemini letters because of Gemini's lifetime warranty.
I discovered that the letters were more than 2 decades old after speaking with our installer about the job. He said he worked
for the moving company years ago and remembered that the letters were installed when the building was completed. That
was 22 years ago. He did not know who had made the letters originally or who the original sign company had been.
I sent the letter "S" to Gemini's production manager who immediately recognized
it as a Gemini product. Our plan was simply to replace the missing letters with
new letters of the same style and approximate color. However, Gemini said that
they would replace all 13 letters at no charge to us. They included a pattern and
shipping as well.
The decision by Gemini to replace the letters at no charge under warranty prevented a mix-match of letters (an eyesore),
saved the customer more than $1,500 in new letters, and secured a Gemini re-seller for life. The number of sources for
formed letters is almost countless today, but I will only buy and sell one product: Gemini.
Thank you to the whole Gemini family.

The Ultimate Aluminum Finish
Anodized finishes are not just coatings - they are a part of the finished aluminum letter. Anodizing is an electro-chemical process that hardens aluminum and allows it to be colorized. Gemini performs our own anodizing to ensure that all of the letters within your order have color
consistency.
Why should you choose an anodized finish for your flat cut metal letter?
Anodizing provides:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Superior abrasion and weather resistance
Increased hardness and durability
Protection against cracking or peeling
A beautiful, long-lasting finish
Defense against sunlight and UV rays
An environmentally friendly final product
